1964 GibsonES-355 – Sunburst

This 1964 Gibson ES-355 is gorgeous in its original Sunburst finish paired with gold hardware! Gibson replaced the sideways vibrola with a “Lyre” vibrola after 1962, and by 1964, the neck profile moved towards a comfortable rounded C shape. This guitar beautifully showcases both of these specs, and they feel and sound wonderful! We love the meaty sound of these balanced humbuckers. The former owner clearly took great care of this guitar, all while playing it lovingly, leaving some general playwear and a smooth feel at the neck! The beautiful shading of this Sunburst finish still has an incredible luster, and if you look closely you can even see a stinger on the back of the headstock! Except for the nut, this guitar is fully original, set up, and ready for its new owner! Will that be you?!
